Recent Reads Mini Reviews

More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks!

Seasons of the Storm by Elle Cosimano

Seasons of the Storm (Seasons of the Storm, #1)

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)
Release Date: June 23, 2020

DNF @ 56%

I was really excited for this book, because I love nature personified stories and forbidden love seasons against all odds sounded amazing to me. But I just gradually started loosing interest while reading and would go out of my way to pick out another book. I was hoping/expecting a lush fantasy world with a well established environment as the setting, but the story felt much more sci-fi and definitely was a urban fantasy. Which I typically love, it just wasn’t what I was expecting going in. I thought the seasons and the program was well established, and the characters were fine, nothing really grabbed me.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Not Like the Movies by Kerry Winfrey

Not Like the Movies (Waiting for Tom Hanks, #2)

Rating: ★★★★☆
Release Date: July 7, 2020

This story is exactly what you expect it will be – and that is why you’ll love it.
Nick and Chloe have wonderful chemistry – and their reluctant acceptance that their life might not be dissimilar to a romantic comedy is great to watch. A super addicting read you can revisit again and again , like your favorite Rom-Com.

Our Time is Now by Stacey Abrams

Our Time Is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America


Release Date: June 9, 2020

This is an informative and comprehensive look at all things voting and how it interacts with your different identities. A really quick read, but very impactful.

Keep My Heart in San Francisco by Amelia Diane Coombs

Keep My Heart in San Francisco

Rating: ★★☆☆☆ (2.5 Stars)
Release Date: July 14, 2020

This might’ve had the most ridiculous premise of any book I’ve ever read, but I had fun. Trying to save her family’s failing bowling alley by going undercover and hustling games to try and make eight grand in a week with her former best friend and crush, Chuck Wilson has a lot on her plate. Many hi-jinks and adventures ensure in this story. I enjoyed seeing Chuck and Beckett’s relationship reform after a fallout in freshman year but the actual plot is so wacky it was definitely hard to take it seriously at time. But it was still a quick and light-hearted read.
